This stance scoot is inspired by Japanese VIP Style or “Japanese VIP Car”. The VIP style is a car modification trend that translates from the Romanised Japanese term ‘bippu.’ It refers to the modification of Japanese luxury automobiles to make them lower and wider instance, with more aggressive wheels, suspension, and body kits.
VIP Style cars are typically large, rear-wheel drive luxury sedans, although automotive enthusiasts sometimes use other cars such as minivans or kei cars. These cars were once associated with the Yakuza; however, VIP style modifications are now a subset of their own as automotive modifications. The VIP style has become a loose appropriation of the term perpetuated amongst enthusiasts that goes beyond traditional VIP cars.
The scoot is owned by Anderson “Andy” Oliveros, a DJ in Dubai and also in clubs and bars Cebu City. Andy has been a long-time enthusiast of the Stance Culture in Cebu and he continues to innovate integrating different ideas to this rapidly growing culture.
“I choose this theme because it is clean, elegant and simple. I built the scoot myself and with some help and advices from a friend who’s been a pioneer in stance build. I also did my own research as well. We encountered some challenges during this build project like shipping delays of parts and correct fitments but despite that, the rewarding aspects of this build is learning something new every day which parts fits best or not, sharing knowledge to inspire new ideas in building custom bikes and most of all seeing the finished product after all the hard work,” said Andy.
The scoot sports a wide array of premium aftermarket parts and accessories. First of which are the Leivenger Phantom mags 14″ paired with TDR disk rotors at the front and back. To boost performance, it features DS4 Stage 2 power pipe, pulley set, titanium ram air and modified air filter. Andy also spared no expense to add impeccable detail to his Japanese VIP build using 100% white gold genuine Heng bolts, VIP hand grips, VIP table for Sake and cigarettes, Junction Produce Accessories, JPA tail and signal LED, clear visor, VIP tire valve caps and custom-made VIP leather seat. To add contrast to carry out his black and chrome color theme, he used chrome grab bar, chrome brake lever, chrome foldable side mirror and chrome short side stand. One of the most notable features of the scoot is the air suspensions by BNYDair. The scoot can transition seamlessly for any riding condition as the suspension height can be fully adjusted with its custom chrome control buttons up front. To finish it off, he added a samurai katana mount on his exhaust pipe, a fitting final touch for his Japanese VIP Scoot.
